Help Our Shining Star to heal from Cancer NOW!

Dear friends, family, colleagues and community of Star La’Moan aka Marla Stone Lyons

In September 2020, Marla was diagnosed with an aggressive and advanced form of ovarian cancer. After the initial surgery, she moved to the Roseville area to live with her dear friend Bob who helped her through months of intensive ongoing chemotherapy.

When Bob moved out of state, Marla needed your help to get back on her feet after more than a year of cancer treatment that derailed her health, curtailed her careers as an educator and performer and uprooted her from her community.

Just when that seemed almost possible Marla was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Ataxia that has left her with severe tremors and loss of muscle strength and control throughout her body. Even the most mundane daily tasks are now a huge challenge for her.

Housing costs are expensive everywhere in California. Marla needs an affordable and stable living situation and is currently unable to to earn a living. She needs monetary support to cover the necessities of rent, food, utilities, insurance, out-of-pocket medical expenses and (hopefully) some in-home assistance.

Please help give Marla the best chance to live a quality life. She is grateful for your love, prayers, support and any contribution you can make.

Our goal is to raise at least $25,000 to help with her expenses. Every gift is deeply appreciated. Thank you, too, for sharing this fundraiser with all of your networks.
